Have you noticed how crazy ATM fees have gotten recently? Heaven forbid you use one that’s not associated with your bank. By the time you pay the first fee AND the “spite” fee from your bank for not using one of theirs, you’re paying close to 6% to take out your OWN money, which is insane. It’s around 3% if you take out $200, and if you take out $300 or more you better watch your back! You are on one of the busiest street corners in the world, Broadway and 33rd in Midtown Manhattan, and it is prime tourist season. As a matter of fact, you’re outside of a tourist stop right now. Why don’t you just stare up into the sky like you’ve never seen a building taller than 3 stories before? Also ask for directions constantly. You’ll be just fine. New Yorkers are among the kindest most helpful people in the world.
The new word on the street is that sometimes they even leave money laying around for YOU to find to brighten your day. No, that must be urban legend. Or is it…
So you’re visiting New York City, and you decide that at some point you have to get some souvenir crap for everybody back home so they know you were thinking of them. I wonder if they’ll be thinking of you when they throw it out, but that’s for another discussion.
This place looks good.
Oh great! There’s even an ATM right outside so you can get cash and try to haggle over the price of a postcard!
This ATM is much different than the ones they have in your country. First of all, they’re outside, which is just bizarre. Second of all it looks like somebody vandalized it…
WITH SOME MONEY!!!
Check out that sticker right there. Those are brand spanking new and we are going to be using the HECK out of them. It just got a little easier to be sneaky. I can stick money wherever I want! I am the Banksy of bucks! A modern day financial graffiti artist. My only hope is that they’re able to peel that $5 bill off the back of the sticker once they realize that a) it’s real money and b) it’s for them. It wasn’t lost or stolen. It was left for you to find. I hope it made your day 🙂
